High traffic volumes on Highway 3 from B.C.

Posted on 22 November 2021 by Prairie Post

Highway 3 in British Columbia has reopened to essential traffic and motorists travelling on Highways 3, 2 and 22 in Alberta can expect an increase in traffic volumes as traffic heads east from B.C.

Currently, Highway 3 is the only highway open from the Lower Mainland and there is expected to be a large volume of traffic, in particular commercial carriers, heading to Alberta.

Travellers are advised to find alternate routes to avoid congestion and can expect periodic delays as commercial traffic picks up into and out of British Columbia.

For motorists considering travel into B.C., please be advised that travel is restricted to essential traffic only on certain routes within the province.

For up-to-date travel information, refer to 511 Alberta.
